Seamless Yoke and A Very Warm Hat

Hi Everyone! I'm new here and very excited to have officially joined. I've been knitting on and off for a few years and I used to be very frustrated with knitting sweaters, so I never finished them ;-( However, I just discovered EZ a few months ago and last month I successfully knit my very first seamless yoke sweater using Morehouse Merino 3-ply worsted yarn. I LOVE this sweater!



Also, we've had a very frosty week here in Wisconsin, so I was happy to knit my hubby one of EZ's very warm hats just in time. I used Cascade 220 and also Classic Elite's Waterlily. Incidentally, his favorite colors are blue and orange, can you tell? Now that he's used it in the subzero weather, he tells me that it is, indeed, a very warm hat.




Looking forward to everyone's posts and also to posting more of my EZ knitting... I'm hooked!

  • Beautiful!! And inspiring. I've just embarked on a seamless yoke sweater using Morehouse Farms 2 ply, so I'm very happy to see your gorgeous sweater. The hat's great too .. I'm going to have to add that to my list. Thanks for the photos and inspiration!

  • Awesome hat. I bought the book just to make that pattern, can't wait to get moving on it, but have several other projects on the needles at the moment.
